64. South Dakota Sand Work

IMG_8810 IMG_8821 IMG_8832
We spent the warmest day so far of the year in the Black Hills at the lake of my childhood, where the cousins created sand castles and moats and dug to their hearts’ content. They were quite protective of their creative sand work, until the temptation to smash and rebuild was too strong to resist. Apart from a family of Canada geese, we had the beach to ourselves. Watching the children play freely in nature was delightful, but also bittersweet to think of how very quickly the years have gone since I was their age and playing on the same shore.
